The AppDynamics platform provides data that helps you make important business decisions. As stewards of that data, we leverage security, privacy, and compliance frameworks with supporting materials that attest to our capabilities. This makes it easier for you to navigate the complex compliance landscape.

AppDynamics’ privacy controls are examined at least once a year by a qualified and independent third-party auditor as part of AppDynamics’ SOC 2 Type II audit. Audit reports are available to customers upon request, as well as potential customers under NDA. Our SOC 2 has been in place for five years and covers security, availability, confidentiality, and privacy.

All employees are required to undergo annual security training and must comply with Cisco’s Global Personal Data Protection and Privacy Policy and binding corporate rules.

The GDPR reinforces existing data protection principles in the European Union (EU) and expands legal protections and privacy rights for EU citizens. A cross-functional effort between our privacy and product teams has led to many product enhancements designed to make it simple for our customers to use our products and SaaS service in compliance with GDPR. Learn more about AppDynamics' compliance with GDPR.

We comply with Privacy Shield, a voluntary framework that introduced stronger protections for the flow of data from Europe to the United States. All personal data received from the European Union and Switzerland are subject to the Framework’s applicable principles. To learn more about the Privacy Shield Frameworks and to view our certification, visit the U.S. Department of Commerce's Privacy Shield List. Read the blog post written by Cisco’s Chief Privacy Officer Michelle Dennedy about our participation in this framework.

Our privacy policy reflects our commitment to protecting personal data. It provides details on the type of personal information we collect, how we store it, how we use it, and what rights individuals have and how to exercise them. Read our Privacy Policy.
